About the event
International criminal justice is growing into a very complex, but increasingly functioning international legal system. In addition to the central role of the International Criminal Court, a number of other courts and tribunals - such as ad hoc tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Lebanon - supplement the judicial component of international criminal law. The purpose of this seminar was to explore the network of international criminal courts, their case law, and their importance for the advancement of the rule of law at the international level.
Part of the seminar was dedicated to the launch of a book, recently published by the Institute: 'Contemporary Challenges for the International Criminal Court'. Co-edited by Dr Andra Zidar and Professor Olympia Bekou.
This event was convened by Dr Andraz Zidar, Dorset Senior Research Fellow in Public International Law.
